What You Should Know
Build-HD is a product from BPI Sports promoted by professional bodybuilder Jay Cutler. The supplement is a concentrated creatine supplement designed to promote muscle growth. According to the product description, other creatine supplements contain Maltodextrin, a cheap carbohydrate used to bulk up the supplement, but carbohydrates are typically taken with creatine and protein supplements to move the supplements to the muscle faster. Carbohydrates act as a transportation system for creatine and protein. Build-HD contains no carbohydrates, as far as we can tell from the ingredient list. Something BPI Sports claims is a positive benefit of the supplement.
List of Ingredients
- Creatine Monohydrate
- L-Aspartic Acid
BPI Sports does a fantastic job of pushing the efficacy of Build-HD even claiming scientific research on the product, but we found no links to such clinical research in the product description. There has been tons of research done on creatine, so why not include some substantial links to support product claims? BPI Sports appears to be more focused on downplaying the efficacy of other products rather than supporting claims about their own product.
Creatine is widely accepted as a crucial part of bodybuilding. Typically bodybuilders take high doses of creatine for a fixed period to load creatine in the muscle and a smaller dose to maintain the loaded level. According to Build-HD you do not need to load the creatine as taking just one scoop per day is enough to build muscle and promote strength and growth. Again, no studies are listed so these claims are nothing more than claims.
The price and taste are probably the best things about Build-HD. Bodybuilders can purchase 30 servings for just $30 and all of the flavors receive rave reviews with White Raspberry and Watermelon earning the highest ratings at 9.2 and 9.3 out of 10, respectively.
- All of the ingredients in Build-HD are listed online.
- Creatine super-hydrates the muscle to promote muscle growth and recovery.
- May mix better in water than other creatine supplements.
- Carbohydrate free, for bodybuilders interested in taking creatine without the carbohydrate push.
- There are no links to the research mentioned in the product description.
Build-HD may be a fantastic creatine product, but we are not keen on companies making claims about clinical research but forgetting to include links to research or even mentioning where the research is published. Build-HD could be a fantastic creatine supplement. The product contains no caffeine or protein so bodybuilders can stack the creatine with other supplements as needed.
